Default Tell me Please!

I have taken Panoramas before well I took one with this new Pentax and then another and tell me that second one is great... The first one was a bit off it was hard to see where to actually line it up! I took the panorama to get the Mt Rainer Range which is posted in a new thread.

It's not bad, I straightened the horizon which I thought helped it (hope you don't mind). Would have been nice if the clouds lifted a bit and you could see Rainier(?) back there.

Thanks for doing that but you see the hills actually run down like that I was standing on one of the many foot hills as well the world is round and we all need to see that flow as well as know it.. its something with photos people don't see the real thing if we keep straightening the shots... with mountains such as the active volcanoes we should keep the tilt alive so we will mentally know which was it mite flow it they blow.

If you have a building in a picture, you can use it to tell if the shot is level or not - use the vertical lines (walls, corners of buildings, etc.). It's sometimes more reliable than terrain.

It's too bad it was cloudy when you shot this - I can imagine how Mt. Rainier must stand out when the sky is blue. It tends to fade into the clouds in this picture.

While it's hard to tell at this small size, it looks pretty good - the joins aren't obvious.

A hot shoe level may be a good way to see if you have a level shot, if you were using a tripod.

I like this one, to bad for the cloud, not letting you see the summit

That is not the only thing that is standing out the power tower is right smack in front as well.
